2016 ANDREZA Douro Tinto 75cl (Douro Valley, Portugal)
Style - Bold
Grapes - Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca
Tasting - This garnet red wine is a blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca. On the nose, Touriga Nacional gives us the floral component with aromas of bergamot and basil, while Touriga Franca is expressed in flavours like blueberry and blackberry.
FYI: Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca are both indigenous varieties to Portugal and form the cornerstone of the Douro Valley blend used in both table wines such as this and the classic fortified Ports.
